Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.
I’ve literally been carrying packed lunches with me for such a long time, back when I was in school as a kid up till now as an adult going to work. I love carrying lunches to work, not only do you save money but you can personalise your meals and really enjoy what you’re eating. There are a lot more options available now but the general cheese and salad or chicken mayo just doesn’t do it for me. Most days I keep my lunches pretty simple because I don’t like feeling super full or bloated at work, so I opt for foods that are fairly filling, nutritious but still tasty. Recently, I’ve been preparing my work lunches before I leave out in the mornings so that I have even more time to myself when I get back in the late afternoon/evening.
I think my current favourite lunch for work has to be a seasoned couscous salad, usually plain couscous sprinkled with salt, chilli flakes, garlic powder and dried herbs. Sometimes I’ll even add some toasted pine nuts for extra flavour which are high in calories, specifically protein helping me to keep fuller for longer.
Quick work lunches ideas:
- Cheese sandwich
- Peanut butter sandwich
- Jam sandwich
- Pasta: sauce, tuna, sweetcorn, carrot, spring onion, cheese, kale
- Leftover homemade pizza
- Couscous salad: tuna, sweetcorn, carrot, pine nuts, lettuce, cucumber, radish, sliced spring onions
- Crackers, carrot sticks apples slices, nuts
- Brioche, carrot sticks, nuts
- Cheesy bread, carrot and cucumber sticks
